The Center for Slavic, Eurasian and East European Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has been awarded a grant from the U.S. Russia Foundation to launch a two-year pilot program at UNC-Chapel Hill. The program will be called “Expanding Disciplinary Horizons: New Directions in Russian Studies”.

The goal of the project is to advance Russian Studies at UNC-Chapel Hill by supporting global partnerships and graduate education, mentorship, and instruction. Its principal investigators are Graeme Robertson, center director and professor of political science, and Adnan Džumhur, associate director of the center.
